Pulag 100 2016 King of the Mountain Race

So last year, I ran a little race - it was 116km with 8,722m of elevation (according to my Strava) in the mountains of Nueva Vizcaya, Philippines, during a thunderstorm, with leeches and crazy suspension bridges. 

It was the hardest thing I have ever attempted and I'm proud as punch for getting fully outside my comfort zone to test my limits. 

I have been meaning to illustrate my race report for the past year but have been busy working and travelling. With just over a week before I do it all again, I finally got it done! 

Many Thanks to Frontrunner magazine for organising and reporting the race; to Jonel Mendoza, Race Director, for a brutal and beautiful course; to Andy DuBois of Mile27  who coaches me and makes it possible to even get to the start line; to Richard and Marie for organising transportation for me; to all the incredible support stop crews; and to each and every runner I met and ran with. 

Let's do it all again next week. OMG. 

Peace out, enjoy the trails xx

Eleni & Patricks Wedding in Canmore, Canada

I recently attended a friends wedding in the winter wonderland that is Canmore, Alberta, Canada. It was held at the Creekside Villa, at the base of these mountains - the three sisters

The bride wore the most spectacular dress, perfect for a snowy winter wedding:

This was one of my first times working with Procreate on the Apple iPad Pro, and I have to say - I LOVE IT!! The pencil is a fantastic tool <3

Here is the time lapse:

 

Here is another little illustration of me and my friends in our fancy outfits :D

Blooming Afternoon Tea at Palm Court

Bringing a breath of floral flair this spring, the Palm Court lobby lounge introduces a colourful textured experience with the Blooming Afternoon Tea.

Executive Pastry Chef Matthieu Godard and his culinary team have designed a selection of five exquisite pastries decorated as a bouquet of blossoms that are aesthetically pleasing, and sweet to the palate. Adding an artistic point of view to the afternoon tea experience, talented British illustrator Tanya Bennett will be designing guest’s portraits to take home.

Tanya Bennett, better known as Tanya aka Pirate, is a Hong Kong based creative talent. The hand drawing of watercolour portraits in a fashion sense has become Tanya’s trademark that makes her stand out from the rest.

Tanya works with a wide range of clients in the luxury, fashion, and lifestyle industries around the globe, including prestigious brands like Christian Louboutin, Cartier, and Lane Crawford.

She studied Clothing Design and Manufacturing and specialised in illustration and fashion advertising. After graduation, she moved from United Kingdom to China and started her career in the field of product development and design, as well as freelance illustration projects.

Cali Triptych

I spend a fair amount of time in Los Angeles, Venice in particular, and I'm hugely fond of this part of the world. On my recent trip I discovered some unprimed wooden panels at the local art store and decided to try working on something a little different whilst I was here. 

I took influence from the beach palettes of my daily runs along Venice Boardwalk:

Venice Boardwalk, Los Angeles

Produced in the afternoon sunshine, powered by green juice and avocado on toast, I produced a triptych study of hands and hair - something I am currently obsessed with drawing. 

Pencil, charcoal, and acrylic on unprimed wood panel. 8 x 10"

Let me know what you think :) 

For a great guide to what to see and do in Venice, check out this blog post by The BLDG 25 Blog.
